Anker Folio Bluetooth Keyboard Case for iPad Air

40W car charger - product

Product Description

Everything you love about your iPad, amplified.

Protection with a flair.

Sporting a sleek synthetic leather exterior, this folio cover looks just like a notebook. Sturdy snap-in brackets and robust fiberglass panels guard your iPad against drops and bumps, while a soft inner lining protects the screen from scratches. So you can be sure of maximum protection without compromising style.

Intelligently intuitive.

By snapping your device to the embedded magnetic strip, the keyboard connects automatically, while the cover provides an upright angle ideal for typing and media playback. For handheld use, the iPad lies flat and securely across the keys. And to trigger your device's sleep or wake mode, simply open or close the cover. Fewer buttons - more automation.

The strong, silent type.

Trade in tapping for typing, and take a break from typos. Low-profile molded keycaps are whisper quiet, while iPad-dedicated hotkeys and an almost full-size layout complete the ideal typing experience. Enjoy a comfortable and efficient keyboard without having to sacrifice portability.

Six-month stamina.

At Anker, quality products just make sense. So we built in a super-sized battery that keeps you going for six months or more between charges, freeing you to worry less and work (or play) more. And after being idle for 10 minutes, the keyboard automatically enters sleep mode. Zzzzzzzz.

Customer Reviews

  • You guys are V chill.
  • Bought this for simple word processing and use with Pearson's My Math Lab on my iPad Air(1). Works great, haven't had to charge after my first month of use, and it arrived quickly. Overall excellent product and I would recommend this to my friends.

  • I love the feel of the keyboard and it is really stable since the iPad magnetically locks in. Perfect when I have to balance the iPad on my lap in a meeting! The only difficulty I have found is the the numbers are a little close the iPad when it is locked in.

  • and it works great. the magnetic strip holds the iPad well
  • I have had this keyboard for almost a year. I use it on a regular basis, and it works great. the magnetic strip holds the iPad well, and the auto connect, disconnect for the bluetooth when it is attached to the magnetic strip is very convenient. The battery is great, it has not died on me, I have charged it twice, in the last year, and only because it was sitting next to a charger on my desk. The keys have a great feel, the cover doesn't slide on hard surfaces. The iPad pops out easy but will never fall out. the outer cover shows wear, but then again I have not been easy on it either.

  • Cannot live without this & basically makes my laptop obsolete
  • This has made my daily life so much easier, convenient, and LIGHTER. I now just carry my iPad (and keyboard) around with me, as opposed to carrying my entire laptop (which is so heavy) like I used too. I'm a college student and prefer to downsize whenever possible so I'm not carrying a ton. Now, I just stick my textbooks, notes, and basically everything on my iPad. The only times that actually use my laptop now are for applications that cannot run on an iPad (Photoshop, Illustrator, etc). Switching to an iPad as my primary device has also caused me to move most of my documents to cloud or other internet storage spaces. In the long run, this is hugely conveient, because all of my documents are accesible at any time and from any location with internet. I use the keyboard daily for probably about 3-4 hours a day. I DO NOT see any difference in battery life of my iPad despite the fact that my bluetooth is consistently on. This keyboard has been indispensible in the year that I have owned it.PROS:1) The construction of the casing. It's not only sleek, but super functional. The magnetic "catch" (that holds the iPad in the laptop-like position in relation to the keyboard) is just strong enough to hold it up so it will not fall but not too strong that it's difficult to fold back inside the case.2) They keys are easy to press and have a comfortable feeling to them3) Generally reliable and doesn't often stop working4) It's durable. I've had my keyboard case for a year now, and it only has minimal exterior damage on the corners of the leather casing from daily usage.CONS:1) The keyboard will occasionally disconnect itself (maybe 1 to 2 times a week) from my iPad and require recconection. It's a bit annoying but usually can be fixed in under a minute by going into your bluetooth settings and clicking reconnect. However, it sometimes takes 5 minutes or so to get working again (I'm not sure of the reason), which happens maybe once a month. Once it reconnects, there are no issues.2) Keys do not light up (but if that's a feature you want, you need a different product anyway)3) Keyboard/keys are slightly smaller than you are probably used to (but it has to be that way to fit the iPad) this might take some getting used to. I didn't find the transition to difficult. People with larger hands might have some difficulty.Additionally, AnkerDirect customer service is WONDERFUL. The charging port on my keyboard stopped working and, after I sent them an email, they sent me a brand new keyboard as a replacement for free. They responded to my emails fast and were very professional. I highly reccomend both this product and this seller.

AGREED - re: iOS 9 - Functionality Loss

 I, too, am having the same issues with my TC 980 keyboard. I've never had an issue in the year I've owned this great device; however, now I cannot use the space bar, the function keys, and it will not pair to my iPad, after I un-paired it to try and restore the functionality . In contacting this forum, I received a response  saying there should be no compatibility issues. It seems clear to me by the many responses in the same vein, that something is amiss with the iOS 9 upgrade.  Please do not dismiss our claims as unrealistic.  These issues are very real and very frustrating .

I'm not sure if it will work, but you could try telling your iPad to "Forget This Device" under BT settings. Then re-pair the keyboard and your device and see if the problem persists. If it does persist, be sure to email so they are aware of the situation.

Thanks- I did indeed (Thursday) "forget" the device then try to re-pair it. It will not pair at all. It shows as available, but will not pair. I emailed support on Friday and am awaiting their response. Cheers!

Thank you for the suggestion on my post, tom. To be honest, I saw mjkelldog's difficulties  when they tried it and now I'm a little nervous about making my iPad forget the keyboard. It's sortakindamostly functional right now, so I don't want to lose all functionality. mj, would you mind providing an update when/if you get one?

iOS 9 - functionality loss

Hi there, 

Ever since I updated my iPad to iOS 9, the shortcuts (such as cmd+c for copy) don't work on my TC980. The overall performance is laggy (takes a couple seconds between when I type a letter and when it shows up on the screen), and occasionally the keyboard acts as if I've been holding down a key when I have not. For example, if I were typing the word 'when', sometimes the keyboard registers 'wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeen' instead. The bluetooth connection also seems to randomly come unpaired, and I have to turn off bluetooth, turn it back on, then tap a key on the keyboard to get it to pair. 


Overall, I like this keyboard, but it seems to have incomplete compatibility with the new iOS. Is there some firmware I need to update, or a solution for this? Thank you.

Half-dead keyboard

I bought my with a TC980 case and keypad (Item model number: AK-98AP9803A-BTKA, Amazon ASIN: B00JK5DCYW). The keyboard has worked nicely until recently the red power light came on. My wife charged it and after charging, would find the keyboard VERY slow to respond and often it would type just the first letter of a message and ignore all other characters typed.

I have unpaired the keyboard from her iPaid Air intendedin to repair and start again, however, having unpaired the keyboard...

1. I get the iPad to scan, then press the connect button on the keyboard and instantly get a pairing code from the iPad, or

2. Leave the keyboard scanning but the winking BT light off, then start the iPad scanning and the keyboard BT light comes on and the pairing code appears on the iPad

So from this is seems BT is working fine, however...

If I input the pairing code and Enter absolutely nothing happens whatsoever. Worringly, if I ignore pairing, just switch the keyboard on and press Caps Lock, the CAPS light does NOT light up.

There seems no hardware reset on the small hole for a paperclip reset...and I am starting the suspect there's a problem with the keypad itself. The BT clearly works, but the keyboard input doesn't, and maybe the original problems my wife had of on the first character being input where as much to do with the actual keyboard as anything to do with BT pairing.

The unit was bought in 4-May-2014.

Any ideas? Is it a half dead keyboard or is there some magic reset I can perform to kick it back into life?

Alternate keyboards

How do I add an Emoji and a French keyboard to my TC930?

Replies(3) Collapse Report as spam Jul 27, 2015 at 9:49 AM

this keyboard is for typing not for emoji 

For emoji you have to use the screen 

Reply Report as spam Jul 28, 2015 at 9:32 AM

What about the French keyboard?  And why is there a function at numeral 6 called alternate keyboards?  How do I add keyboards such as French and Spanish?  I understand about the emoji though I'm still not sure how to access it.  Do I turn off bluetooth?  If so, where?

You can add keyboards on your device directly.

Tap the “Settings” icon on the home screen to launch the Settings app, tap “General,” tap “Keyboard” and then tap “Keyboards” to display the keyboards screen. Tap the keyboard language you want to use or tap “Add New Keyboard” if your preferred language is not listed.

1 row of letter keys stopped working

I have been using this keyboard perfectly for the past 6 months, but recently the entire row of letter keys starting with "z" stopped working. There is no reason for this to happen as no damage was done to the keyboard.

I also contacted customer services via email a few days ago, as is what you probably would tell me to do on this reply, but customer services have yet to send me back an email. Has this problem ever occurred before and is there anything I can do to make it work again?

Do you know if the keys are "stuck" or just not regestering? Go to HTTP://WWW.KEYBOARDTESTER.COM/ and follow the instructions there to help define the problem.

Reply Report as spam Jul 20, 2015 at 3:22 PM

So the keys aren't stuck, they're just not registering. I also just tried the website you referred me to, and the entire z row didn't work no matter what I did. But thanks for your help though.

The magnetic strip is not involved in how the keyboard case communicates with your iPad. The keyboard case is a Bluetooth device. It sounds like your two components aren't paired properly (they probably were at one time and something changed, maybe Bluetooth has been shut off or the profile deleted). For help with this, scroll up on this page to where you see "Instruction Manuals & Drivers" and use it as a guide to pair your units. For further assistance just drop an email to

No support for forward-Delete?

Just received mine.  It appears that it doesn't support foward-Delete.  On Macs (and the Logitech Ultrathin keyboard for iPad Air), this is accomplished via fn-Delete.  On this product, fn-Delete simply kills the Bluetooth connection.  Am I missing something?  Is there some other way of accomplishing forward-Delete that I'm just not seeing?

I hope there's a workaround, as I love the Anker keyboard but this will be a deal-breaker for me.

The delete button alone should do this, does that not work?

The Delete key works as a standard delete key -- that is, backing over the text, deleting what is to the left of the cursor.  This is fine, but it's not forward-Delete.

Forward-Delete "sucks up" what is to the right of the cursor, deleting what is forward from the cursor's own position.

A small thing, but essential for some of us.  MacBook keyboards allow it;  Logitech's Ultrathin allows it, simply by allowing the Delete key to be *just* a delete key (and not doubling it up with some custom function like Bluetooth toggling that apparently overrides iOS' native fn-Delete recognition).

I love the Anker TC980 otherwise, but if it can't do forward-Delete, it will be endlessly frustrating for me and I'll have to return it.  I'll stick with my Logitech Ultrathin and hope that Anker eventually releases a redesign that lets the Delete key just be a Delete key and doesn't override Apple's own naturalized functionality.
